Stage Your Home to Sell - Expert Realtor Advice!

As professional Staging Experts and Realtors, we have been told that we can be a little fanatical about making sure that we have great pictures of our listings.  After all, selling a home is much like being in a beauty contest, no?! 

BEFORE our Realtors go-live with a listing, we discuss important Stage Your Home to Sell tips with our Sellers, providing them with helpful hints in preparing their home for picture day.  Three important tips are cleaning (Q-tip clean), de-cluttering (no hiding stuff in closets, buyers look there too!) and de-personalizing the home.  Putting away personal family photos, re-arranging furniture to better fit the space, and special attention to curb appeal are just a few staging ideas that are suggested.  The ultimate goal is to create a beautiful and inviting space that will grab the attention of all potential buyers.

Below are 2 pictures of the same living room.  The first picture was taken by another Realtor, who had the listing for 6 months and the home didn't sell.  The 2nd picture was taken by Staging Expert and Realtor, Melinda Peterson, after re-arranging a few pieces of furniture and taking the picture from a different angle.  What a difference, huh?  After this home received a new face lift of pictures, it sold for full price in just 42 days on the market.
